The conference, organised by Planning, will take place at the Institute of Structural Engineers on 7 December. It aims to give senior professionals from both the public and private sectors working planning, regeneration and economic development to explore what Brexit means for them.

Here are three reasons to attend:

1. Understand the implications of Brexit for environmental regulations. Planning silk Richard Humphreys QC, of No5 Chambers, will explore what Brexit means for environmental regulations that have derived from European directives and the likely practical implications of any changes.

2. Explore how planning tools can make areas attractive to potential investors. A panel debate at the conference will examine the implications of Brexit for inward investment. James Sproule, chief economist and director of policy at the Institute of Directors, Mark Littlewood, director general at the Institute of Economic Affairs and Nigel Wilcock, director at the Institute of Economic Development, will take part in the session.

3. Learn how Brexit could affect population change and household growth. James Donagh, director at consultancy Barton Willmore, will discuss what Brexit means for plan-making at the event. In a session on calculating housing need in a post-Brexit period, Donagh will examine how local planning authorities and applicants should respond to post-Brexit changes to household growth.
